"the Former israeli ambassador: Lars Adaktussons guest in the parliament advocating war crimes"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. After last month's election in Israel, the harsh reality has become increasingly clear. Supporters of the Kahane party, which is racist ultranationalist politician who advocates the expulsion of palestinians and which had not previously been seen as par for the course, have gained a new legitimacy. "
"These are now expected to get positions in Netanyahu's new coalition. "
"Benjamin Netanyahu will more than likely lead the new government, his fifth. He himself has already made it clear that he is in favour of annexation, takeover, of the parts or the whole of the west bank. Trump administration has, by recognizing israeli sovereignty over the syrian Golan heights, a territory conquered in war in 1967, got Israel to believe that the united states will recognise Israel's complete takeover of the west bank as part of Israel. "
"it's only a matter of time."
"of Course, are not the palestinians of the west bank respondents, nor respected their basic human rights as residents. This inevitably leads to Apartheid. This bleak political reality is accompanied by increasing attacks against human rights defenders in civil society in Israel."
"It is with this background that the Christian democrats commanded an organization called My Truth to the Swedish parliament. As an israeli citizen who cares about my country's future, I feel compelled to tell you about the organization and the work that they do."
"My Truth is composed of israeli reservsoldater, who claim that they reveal the reality in the west bank. In fact, focus their work on silencing the israeli human rights organisations. Their business is all about countering and silencing the organisation Breaking the Silence, which is a group of israeli veterans who are working to bring an end to the occupation. "
"My Truth has been trying to bring about a special law that shall prohibit the Breaking the Silence Law to speak in israeli schools. "
"It is entirely legitimate to disagree with the positions from the israeli human rights defenders. But legislation that would make it illegal for these to be heard is anti-democratic."
"Avihai Shorshan, co-founder and executive director of My Truth and one of the organization's representatives in the parliament last week, lives in the illegal israeli settlement of Kfar Adumim in the west bank. He is also active in the Jerusalem Belt Forum, an organization who works for the forced displacement of palestinian communities around Jerusalem."
"Shorshan in particular have been involved in a campaign which advocates the destruction of the palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar. This village, home to hundreds of palestinians, is strategically located next to Highway 1, which connects Jerusalem with the jordan valley, and is of particular interest to those aiming to make a palestinian state impossible. "
"the Forced deportation of the population and the demolition of the village of Khan al Ahmar would divide the west bank into two parts and impossible a territorial cohesive viable Palestine, and thus render impossible a viable palestinian state. "
"in Addition, the Shorshan advocated the use of collective punishment of palestinians. On one occasion murdered a 13-year-old girl in a settlement near Hebron. The perpetrators came from a smaller town in the Vicinity, Bani Naim. "
"When the christian democrat guest in parliament asked by the Israeli media about this event answered Shorshan:"
"the Settlers in general and, in particular, Avihai Shorshan trying to destroy all possibilities for a two-state solution in Israel-Palestine, and thereby also the hope of maintaining a vibrant democracy in Israel itself. "
"To invite the extreme right, and groups that actively support bosättarpolitiken to international platforms undermines the legitimacy of the voices that want to be deleted from the basic parameters of human rights and international humanitarian law. "
"the Christian democrats say they want to be our friend and ally Israel. But we need friends that support basic democratic values, rather than those who choose to give platforms to groups that attack civil society and human rights organisations who ignore international law and palestinian lives. "
"More than ever, we need friends that give support to the groups and to policies which lead to peace and dignity for both israelis and palestinians."
"nIlan Baruch, former israeli ambassador in south Africa and is currently chairman of the working group Policy Working Group, which consists of israeli former politicians and officials seem to support the two-state solution"
